Overland Park, KS (April 30, 2015)

Intouch Solutions proudly announces the promotion of Jim Haupt to vice president of Intouch Science. A leading marketing agency serving the pharmaceutical industry, Intouch has seen rapid expansion over the past five years and actively promotes experienced leaders from within the 600-person firm.

Haupt joined Intouch in 2013 as a medical director and has since built a team of talented content creators and experts who service the company’s medical marketing needs across all three of their offices. Haupt played a key role in creating Intouch Science, a group specializing in clinical guidance, by coalescing a core unit of skilled writers and consultants with postgraduate degrees in diverse subjects, including medicine, medical and molecular genetics, biological sciences, and neuroscience.

“Jim’s vast experience in medical marketing makes him an invaluable asset to our senior ranks,” said Faruk Capan, CEO. “In addition to his expertise, Jim is always willing to help his team by interpreting the most difficult medical questions. We are honored to have his talent and knowledge and look forward to the strides he will make in his new position.”

As vice president of Intouch Science, Haupt will continue to complement the company’s renowned digital capabilities with insightful clinical understanding and a scientific approach to medical messaging, data visualization and customer engagement. Intouch Science brings a high level of scientific rigor to the creation of novel content, ensures accuracy and acuity in promotional pieces, and identifies marketing opportunities within complex clinical data.

“This is an absolutely fascinating time to be melding medical communications with mobile technology,” said Haupt. “The potential applications of recent technological advances are increasingly moving us beyond the boundaries of current marketing channels, even within the digital space, and far beyond the activities of traditional agencies. At one end of our marketing spectrum, we are creating medical communication systems to assist clinical trial investigators, and at the other, we are developing techniques that give virtual support to rehabilitating outpatients.”

Haupt received his Ph.D. in biochemistry from Rush Medical School in Chicago and his B.Sc. in genetics from University College London in England.
